The Working Group, years ago, never really got consensus on the part of XLink that I always thought would have made it really useful: that of link discovery, known to HyTime fans as architectural forms. XLink was also not quite powerful enough to meed the requirements of HTML, specifically in not supporting a single element with multiple links (consider the lowsrc and longdesc attributes on images), although there was never really any chance of renaming href to xlink:href in HTML. The spec does still need to be maintained and revised from time to time. > I do still regularly dream of XLink-based applications, though - I've > just concluded I can't actually have them in the contexts where I'd like > them.
